Beckman 6" Round Toe Posted: 5/4/16
Reviewer: Steve Murdock from PA
Overall: Rated:3 stars! Comfort: Rated:3 stars! Style: Rated:3 stars!

Very good quality, but it would take a year just to break them is. The insole consists of rock hard leather, not even a comfort insole. The shoes seem to make my feet pronate and slide to the inside. They are not comfortable at all and the laces were cheap and weak. I think the shoes would last forever, but not for me. They are too hard and stiff. I had to return them.

Having read many reviews on these boots that said buy half a size down. Not for me. I wear from a 8 to 8.5. So I got them in a 8. Bottom line I needed a 8.5. Same heel slip. But they feel comfy. Yes, they need to be broken in. They feel good on my feet at this size. So for me a larger size was needed (8.5). So if they do not feel good on your feet when you get them, get a different size. Great fit and finish on these boots. They look and feel like they will last a lifetime.

This is definitely a quality product. The materials and construction are premier. The boots felt sturdy yet comfortable right out of the box. Having said that, there is still a break-in period; probably about a week of constant wear. But this is to expected and it is not a negative, rather typical of high-quality strong boots. I am a type 1 diabetic, which means my feet can be sensitive and require extra vigilant protection. The Beckman boot works perfectly for me. I also own a pair of Alden Indy boots and I think that the Beckman's are in some ways better. They are lighter, sturdier, and require a shorter break-in period! Everyone's feet are different, so not every pair of footwear will work for all. But for most people, I believe these boots will be received with much appreciation. Thank you Red Wing for making a quality product in the good ole' USA! And what can be said about Zappos other than superb on all accounts.

First off I can't say enough about Zappos' quality service.I ordered a pair of boots on a Wednesday they arrived Thursday. Too big, I returned them at a UPS pick-up location, and had my new boots that fit right on Friday- awesome! Zappos has definitely the best customer service I ever had the pleasure of dealing with in online retail. Now onto the boots. Red Wing make a quality product, and if you're willing to spend the extra bucks it is absolutely worth purchasing something from their Heritage Collection; they exude quality. They only use the best most premium leathers tanned at one of the oldest and only remaining tanneries in the United States. However, the boots and shoes from this collection do take time to break in. I've owned my #8111's for two weeks now, and they get more comfortable with each passing day, and I do wear them everyday at least 8 hours a day. Red Wing boots do run about a size, or at least a half size long, and they do run a tad narrow, so if you do have wide feet you may need to size up. These boots are so nice I plan to buy another pair from their Heritage Collection soon.

No doubt these are extremely high quality boots. Great leather and stitching. Takes awhile to break in but that's how most long lasting items are. Not exactly as comfortable as others make them out to be but to each his own. Definitely worth the money. These were my first pair of Moc toes so the weight of the boot was something new to me but you definitely get use to it after awhile. Sizing down varies also. I ended up sizing down 1.5 so don't fret if it takes you awhile to find the perfect fit because it took me 3 tries. If you are lucky to have a local Red Wing shop check them out so they can properly get you fitted. These are also definitely waterproof but the one negative thing about these boots is the tread of the soles wear down pretty quickly. I ended up getting a vibram sole when they needed resoled and it definitely made a huge difference in regards to grip but like I stated earlier to each his own. Red Wing also does a great job of showing unions love. Also try to oil/condition your boots once a month and they will last for years. If you're on the fence, go ahead and order a pair and see if you like them or not. Zappos has the best customer service and return policies so you can't go wrong going through Zappos for your online purchases. Just don't get discouraged at how uncomfortable they are at first. Hope this helps!

My first pair of Red Wing Irish Setters were purchased from a Red Wing store in 1985. Three times they have been resoled and repaired by Red Wing. Not bad for 30 plus years of hunting, hiking, construction and landscape work. Over the years they have become like ballet slippers. So conditioned to my feet I can, and often do, dance in them. Alas the leather is finally cracking apart and I fear they are almost played out. Did not think I could get another resoling out of them so purchased a new pair. Still great boots but as mentioned in many reviews, the sizing has apparently changed. The new pair, which has the exact same sizing as my old, fits a half size larger. This for a work / hunting boot is very important. All said I would still invest in another pair of these boots. With proper care they will become like an old friend you can always count on.

So far so good. If you don't plan on putting an extra insole, then you would need to size down at least a half size. I originally bought a size 11 (usual size) but was too big. I returned it and exchanged it for a 10 1/2 and fits perfect.

Great boots -- definitely the most solidly-constructed I've ever had. The hardest part was determining what size to get. I typically wear size 11, occasionally 11 1/2, and rarely 10 1/2. The 11s in these boot felt perfect without any breaking in, and if I knew the leather wasn't going to stretch, I would have gone with that. But after reading all the reviews, I also tried 10 1/2 and 10s. The 10 1/2 felt almost too tight, though my toes weren't touching the front of the boot. The 10s felt way too tight, with my toes feeling crammed all the way up into the toe bed. So I went with the 10 1/2s, hoping that the break-in period would result in enough stretching to make them comfortable. I spent the first couple days walking around the house in them, feeling like I made a mistake. They were very stiff and uncomfortable and felt way too small -- smaller than they'd felt in the store. Then, on day 3, suddenly they got comfortable, and they've felt great ever since. So I definitely echo all the other comments here regarding sizing down at least 1/2 size from your usual size. They also look great. I tried and returned some Danner boots before getting these -- the quality of those wasn't anywhere near the Red Wings. I also bought some Red Wing boot paste (pine pitch, mink oil, and beeswax), and I really like how it darkens the leather.

Buying a boots online need alot of background studies. I do recommend that buyer to visit stores to try your size before you purchase. Pls take note, 1) the overall size of boots are bigger, compare to normal shoe. 2) you have to go 1/2 - 1 size down to get the perfect fit for your boots. When you have a smaller size, you can still replace or remove the sole to have more room space within the boots 3) go have some reading on heel slip.

I've been hunting for a good leather boot like this for years to replace my 20 year old Chippewas. I wear anywhere from Womens size 6W to 7M and when I saw these in size 4 was ecstatic--but not to be. Size 4 was way too long. Width was good. Have to say was not impressed with the quality, there were nails coming all the way through into the sole. Leather also looked beat up.

Great boot! Worth the extra spend. As other reviewers have said, size down. I wear an 10.5/11. Got a 10 and they're perfect. I've had them for a couple weeks and have worn them 7-8 times. I get compliments every time.

These are very well built shoe and I am hoping they will hold up because they cost more than I would usually pay for shoes of this type. They took very little break in time and the fit was true to size.

I purchased these boots as a gift. They run a bit larger than traditional sizes. They are also quite stiff at first and do take time to break in. However, I am told that after they break in they are extremely comfortable. I purchased these directly through Zappos because their customer service is stellar.

These are probably the best boots that I have purchased. Yes, they will be painful in the beginning. In fact, I almost returned them back when I got them 2 weeks ago. But now, they are becoming more and more comfortable as each day goes by. I would recommend resisting the urge to buy a size up, because initially you will feel that they are a bit tight. Once you start breaking into them, they will become comfortable. I would highly recommending getting a shoe horn, otherwise you will be spending 5 minutes each day getting into them. I would also highly recommend getting thick socks to help with the break in process. Besides the painful break in period, these boots are great. They feel great and look great! Highly recommend getting this boot!

The leather is absolutely top quality, the look is perfect, look great with everything from khakis to jeans. Still in the break in period but I can tell they will last and the comfort of these boots increases every day. Sizing for me was half size smaller. I wear 11.5 in Nike, Clarks. and 11 fits great in the Beckman. You are going to get what you pay for with these, QUALITY. be prepared to break them in thoroughly before you fully enjoy them.

Great durable boot that will last for years. Initially I was sent the wrong IR entirely(size, color, and sole) but Andrew in customer service took great care of me and overnighted me two different sizes for no charge. I recommend trying multiple sizes here. I wear an 8-8.5 running shoe, 7.5 perfectly fitting pair of Anderson Beans, and a super tight size 7 in another type of boot. The 6.5 IR is bigger than all of those. Breaking in nicely and very comfortable.

Great boot. My second pair of red wings but first pair that fits properly. I wish other models came in EE sizes! Red Wing (and other Brands) should step it up in respects to size options! I can't imagine everyone being a "D" width if they are truly looking for a great fitting boot/shoe. I would order these 1/2 size down from "normal" boot size. At this much per pair, these boots cost about per year! Great value!

Returned the boot as it just wasn't wide enough. I have very wide feet so I knew it was a gamble going in, although a minor one with Zappos :) The leather is really, really nice. It has this velvety texture to it that accepts daily wear with ease. Don't like a mark on the leather from accidentally bumping a chair? No problem, rub it with your fingers and it disappears. Quality appears to be top notch, just wasn't the right size for me.

These are the best boots I've ever owned. The black ones are my second pair. They will mold to your foot. If you take care of them, they are almost indestructible. My two pairs are my everyday shoes.
